13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
She knows the subject very well.
She knows her field very well, and explains to students well to clarify things
I like how Jill was able to keep the class fresh. She was creative in her postings giving the class material to ponder and respond to.
passion
Very flexible and very helpful.
she has life experiences she can realte to the subject
This is an online class, and Jill provided students assignments/projects and weekly postings regarding the Aging process, so that we understand the context of the course.
She knows how to try and make a class fun.
She has assignments that really make us think about the material being taught.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
The assignment were not graded timely.
No changes
nI am an instant gratification kind of student. When I turn in a paper I like results within a week to enhance and make changes for future papers based on her perspectives of my submittal.
It would be easier to keep on time with replying to all postings if they were due on the same days each week.
none
None
none
I think, just knowing our grades of our projects or postings at least in the midterms so we'll have and idea of how we're doing for this class.
Just if we could know what we are getting on our papers.
I'd like it if she would up date our grades regularly so we know how we're doing in the class.
Worst book I ever had to read!!!!!
Changes Iw ould suggest for Professor Wakabayashi would be to keep her students up dated with their grades so that her students know what areas they need to improve on or what kind of help they need to ask for. I feel that without getting feedback, I was left confused about if I was really learning anything from the class.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She responses to emails and she participates in our forum discussions
Takes her time to listen to the students concerns
She responded quickly to my emails which I much appreciated.
stick around after class to answer questions
encourage students to participate with discussion
Answering questions that we may have had.
I emailed her about the format of a paper and how it got messed mup and she responded quickly and she did not take points off for it.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
yes, she knows the content
YES
Absolutly, she is approachable and encourages a great stmosphere for learning.
yes
Yes. I would recommend her because she is a great teacher.
yes-she enjoys teaching the subject
Yes. Her introduction for the weekly postings are really interesting..can't get bored.
Yes, cause she's fun.
Yes I would because her assignments for an online class are reasonable and you learn a lot about the sunject.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Sometimes the forum discussions were not available at specified time, and the due date would be too soon.
I really have learned quite a bit in this class and have enjoyed it imensely.

I like that I can participate in class from my home.
it forced me to read thoroughly
although there is no class to go to i was able interact with classmates via discussion board- i enjoyed it
I am more comfortable with online conversation, and so I can participate more.
Some of the assignments really helped you to understand how an elderly person thinks and why they do some of the things that they do.

14. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
She went through the material in a way where each question required student participation making sure we understood what was going on. She was very into the material she was teaching, so it made the work seem interesting as well.
She knew the subject area very well, and class was always fun! She taught in a way that would keep our attention, and keep us focused.
she is perfect. she does a excellent lecture very thorough and striaght to the point
She knows her area of teaching.
She made Kinesiology interesting and applied it to daily life. I probably learned the most in this class this semester. She also had experience in the field which allowed her to tell stories about certain bones etc that made it easier to understand.
JIll is an excellent teacher. Her style of teaching was very effective for the students, such as her enthusiasm and encouragement of class participation.
She is high energy and keeps the students engaged. She is very knowledgable and helps the students when ever she can.
Great energy as a teacher. Made the class fun. Would have like to get more timely email responses.
She is good at explaning complicated topics (a lot of good examples).
Jill is a terrific teacher, clear, concise, warm, approachable, helpful, supportive, good feedback, enthusiastic. She breaks complex material into understandable components and encourages students to use all available resources to comprehend it. She is an excellent teacher and is a bright star in KCC. They are fortunate to have her.
15. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
No changes, great job!
none
Change the text book to match up with the workbook. It was a challenge and a headache using the textbook for the workbook. It also cost more money buying the book that did match up with the workbook.
Maybe more applications to exercise and sports.
Not much I can see that needs to be fixed in her course. The class is well organized and she keeps to her schedule. What more could a student ask for?!
Make the Lab text required. i used that more then the regular text.
None. I think that she has a system that is very effective.
16. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She would listen to questions we had, and always be willing to help us.
She gave us detailed notes for the quizes.
When ever and how ever she could help she did.
Always had open door policy. Easy to talk to and ask questions
She makes all of her students feel like part of a family. She knows their names, she has a wonderful sense of humor, she is patient in explaining new concepts.
17. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes because she knows what she is talking about and makes the material not seem boring
Yes, because she is a great teacher who is a lot of fun to have in class.
Yes, because she is very knowledgable and encouraging about her line of field.

21. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
Everything. I didn't know most of what was covered through the whole course before
I think the entire course was valuable. This course taught me information that I will need in the physical therapist assistant program. Also, as a student, it taught me how important it is to study and keep up with the material.
The outside knowledge I learned, not just from the text book.
Just learning about how the body works and how we can improve the lives of others through the skills we've learned.
Learning not only the important muscles, but how their structure contributes to their function. How the different systems mesh together into a coordinated whole is absolutely amazing.

Loved the lab. Very interactive and interesting material.

14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
No changes, great job!
None.
I would have appreciated going over the lab after we completed it to make sure we did everything correctly. Since it was mainly a self-taught lab I was worried sometimes as to whether or not I was really grasping the subject.
Wish there could have been a little more instruction in the lab rather than just letting the students figure things out. We sometimes didn't know if we were right or wrong.
It helps to recieve grades and comments of how we are doing so far. For example, feedbacks for the assinments.
None. She is an exemplary professional.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She would take the time to answer any questions we had.
She put people in groups to work on the labs in class.
She demonstrates unflappable patience, good humor and explains complex concepts clearly.

22. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I liked everything in this lab class. Lab classes, like the lecture classes were always really fun. I'm glad we were able to apply what we learned in the lecture at the lab class.
The hands on experience.
The way that it reinforced the knowledge gained in lecture in three dimensions and real time.
23. Other comments:
I thoroughly enjoyed Jill's lecture and lab classes.
Construction outside of the class was a headache. Kinesiology courses in general have to be worth more credits for the content involved in the course.
Jill and her program should receive top honors from KCC. Her contributions to the welfare of citizens of the State of Hawaii are invaluable and an inspiration.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Recognized important facts we needed to know about the PTA profession we are enetering.
She motivates us to thinks for ourselves. very helpful and encouraging. keeps us engaged.
She explains things well from experience
She is very knowledgeable in her work field. She makes a good teacher, and also PTA program director. She really believes in PTA's and shows a lot of respect for those entertaining the program, and also those who are PTA's as well.
She knows her area of teaching.
very upbeat.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
no changes
teach more class time: we only met 8 times the whole semester
Although, she is a very busy person, knowing that we hardly meet in class, it would really help if she were to answer e-mails and respond to questions via e-mail or laulima (discussions, etc). Some assignments weren't very clear, and there were some things that weren't answered when asked a question. =/
None.
could be a little more organized.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She is always available if we need help. She guides us in the right direction.
She told us what to study for on the exams
There are hardly any teachers that I've taken that actually gave out their cell number for questions, but she was the only one that did so. So far, I thought that she graded fairly, and definitely made the class enjoyable because she always had a way to relate a certain topic to our lives. Very excellent!
She extended the time table on projects if students did not understand what was required for the project.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes, she is fun, and we learn a lot
yes, she is easy
Yes, most definitely!!! She is very knowledgeable, and really knows a lot about physical therapy. I mean, EVERYTHING!!! The in's AND out's of pt. She knows every muscle, nerve, function, structure, etc. Or even anything that deals with insurance, people in physical therapy, all the therapy clinics, etc. She is amazing!!!
Yes, because she is fun and loves her area of work. She makes it understandable for students and puts it into perspectives.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
I hope I learn a lot from her health 290/health 290L class

20. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
The mandatory clinical observation really opens your eyes to the PTA field.
Opened my eyes to the world of physical therapy and what it has to offer.
the volunteering
She is very good at explaining everything, and I think it's because she's experienced it all, and been through a lot. I love the fact about how passionate she is. She is a kind of person that see's what she wants and goes for it. Amazing.. just amazing!!!
It gave me an introduction into the field of study of PTA.
I got experience in the field that I'm going to school for.
